Just to start, I'm 26 grad student, and basically I'm using student loans to fund my retirement. (The loans have a locked low interest rate, Paying them off on time should build some credit. And basically all I"m doing is forcing my self to invest in my retirement when I have to pay back the loans.) I opened a 2007 Roth IRA with Fidelity and maxed it out, 4k

I can't tell from that snip. Just to be sure, you did have earned income in 2007?

After that, I mostly agree with AcmeFool's comments
